Have you noticed the self-centered focus creeping into conversations, even in the Church? Phrases like “live your best life”, “find your destiny” or “you do you” reveal a core belief that we are entitled to live life well AND on our own terms – but what did Jesus really teach about abundant living? Author and pastor Dean Inserra will help us discern the fake gospel of personal prosperity and self-affirmation while leading us toward cross-centered, Christ-focused Christianity.
